  • “Ken did exactly what he put in his contract and more. I appreciated the timeliness, compassion to a business owner’s concerns, professionalism, and his honest suggestions. I believe any picture framing business could benefit from the analysis provided by Ken Baur.”

  • “I attended your Social Media class in Vegas, and wanted to thank you! Very well done with great info. As a past High School Principal… I know quality instruction. In addition to everything else, you are a great teacher!!”

    Curt Wheeler

  • “I love it! The Instant Marketing program saves us a lot of time & energy.”

    Instant Marketing Program
  • “I love the Instant Marketing Program ideas, the newsletter wording, and the calendar! The fact that it plans 2 months in advance keeps me on task.”

    Courtney in VT
    Instant Marketing Program
  • “Marketing often feels like it could be another full time job to me, but the Instant Marketing Program is incredibly helpful with my already busy days in the gallery.  It’s well organized and easy to implement.  The content is fantastic with timely ideas and good photos and design I feel proud to present to our customers.  The copy is well written and informative.  I still have the ability to customize the content by adding our logo, editing parts to reflect the ‘voice’ of our gallery and to include photos from projects created by our designers, but – ohmygosh – I also love how easy it is to plug in the pre-designed templates into our mailchimp account!”

    “Last month I really needed help with my ‘to-do’ list; the Instant Marketing Program kept our marketing efforts on track (and kept my stress levels way down!).  In fact, the last marketing email generated a couple positive email replies from our customers who were both impressed with the content and inspired to find their own projects to frame.  It was awesome to know we stood out in our customers inboxes!  I’m excited to have this new tool because our team is able to use it as an inspiring boost in our marketing plans.”

  • “We knew it was time to update our website. We also knew we were missing an opportunity by not having an effective email program. When KB agreed to create our site and get us started it was just the push we needed. The result was a new website that features CBF as the full-service, professional shop we are, but in a manner that reflects our very unique style.”

    Pam Hoye
    Calhoun Beach Framing
  • “Ken is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the framing industry. His transference of our projections into spreadsheets helped us to see the bigger picture. He gave us recommendations on all facets of our new business, from equipment choices to point of sale and margins. I would highly recommend him whether you are starting a new business or want to improve on your existing business. There is nothing like experience!”

  • “Thank you! We really enjoyed the talk, very interesting to put it all together in a way that will help us communicate to different customer’s personalities to close the sale.”

  • “Ken went beyond expectations…As a result of his pricing and profitability program I now have a far greater understanding of our pricing structure than I’ve had in 25 years of owning my business. I was able to expand beyond the frame, glass and mat pricing we worked on together and improve the other components of our pricing structure.”

    Jim Brown
    Old Main Gallery & Framing
  • “I just started a month ago as a framing consultant/designer at The Studio Shop. We used your manual to help with training which was helpful from time to time, and I can say that I was pretty much fully trained in about 3 weeks. The manual was very helpful, especially when my boss and I came up with our own acronym for the 6 design concepts: SUPERB.”

    Katrina Magowan
    The Studio Shop
  • “Just wanted to touch base to let you know how pleased I am with Tracy’s work on the new website. She definitely exceeded my expectations and I am very grateful to her for taking the ball and rolling with it. She has been wonderful to work with and has the patience of Job. You all are the very Best.”

  • “We’re following the Instant Marketing Program to the letter, and it saves us an incredible amount of time. The content is ‘spot on’ – we’re getting great results already! And the new MailChimp template is fantastic!”

    Jamie in AR

  • “Thank you! Your class was among the most informative, and was certainly the most well-organized I attended.”

    John Horrocks
    Blackbird Art & Frame
  • “Ken’s Pricing Analysis was overall a great help to my business – in one month my profitability has improved. It has been a painless way to increase prices without customer resistance.”

    Marty Smith
    Middleton Art & Framing
  • “Simplicity of use… the Instant Marketing Program saves me time and enables me to focus on my current projects because of the simplicity and clarity of the program.

    Consistency… Months tick past faster than any of us care to recognize and before you realize that it is time for a newsletter, the program pops up in your mail box consistently every month. My customers are now paying attention to ‘my’ newsletters because they look forward to the next month’s article. And the variety of subjects and options keeps it fresh and interesting for my readers.”

  • “Ken was outstanding in his approach, suggestions and help…We welcomed the insights of a seasoned framing practitioner as new eyes to help us grow. It is always helpful to have another set of ‘new’ eyes look at your business. We knew that our customer was aging and would require less and less of us but did not know the best way to reach the younger demographic in our area. We believe we now have a good idea how to do that.”

  • “The Instant Marketing Program is a dream come true! It allows me to provide ALL of my digital marketing needs with a minimum of my own time invested. The layouts are very professional looking and fit the brand of our shop nicely. This is a no-brainer for people in our industry that understand digital marketing is a necessary aspect of a successful business. I love the MailChimp import function. Well done and easy to use/understand!”
